During a typical newborn or family photography session I take between 100-300 photographs. I narrow the majority of galleries down to around 30 portraits. I choose my favourite 30 enhance before loading to a gallery. There are different reasons for images being cut from a final gallery. Sometimes the focus is too soft on the eyes, sometimes the angle was not quite right or maybe there is a better version of the pose in the set already.
Every now and again when culling through a sessions images a photograph will just stop me and make me laugh. As a newborn photographer there are often some pretty gross images to make me chuckle. I often save them anyhow. Here are a few images that didn’t make the final galleries over the past few months.
